How your support helps

Throughout history, people who are blind or partially sighted have had to fight their whole lives. Fight to be accepted, fight to be included, fight for the same opportunities as everyone else.

With your support, our goal is to end the fight. Through a range of life-enhancing programs and bold advocacy campaigns, we're working to create a future in which Canadians who are blind don't have to battle for equality, inclusion and accessibility anymore.

If you believe in true equality for people who are blind or partially sighted, we hope you'll join us in this important mission.  

Who we are

Founded in 1918, the CNIB Foundation is a non-profit organization driven to change what it is to be blind today. We deliver innovative programs and powerful advocacy that empower people impacted by blindness to live their dreams and tear down barriers to inclusion. Our work as a blind foundation is powered by a network of volunteers, donors and partners from coast to coast to coast. To learn more or get involved, visit
